OTT, JOSEPH T.
PARTICIPANTS IN A FOUR DAY WORKSHOP ON VOCATIONAL NEEDS OF THE DEAF INCLUDED EDUCATORS OF THE DEAF, REHABILITATION WORKERS, DEAF PERSONS, PARENTS OF DEAF CHILDREN, AND REPRESENTATIVES OF LABOR AND GOVERNMENT. FOUR TOPICS WERE DISCUSSED--(1) EVALUATION OF EXISTING VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMS, (2) NEEDED EXPANSION IN VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMS, (3) STAFF RECRUITING AND PREPARATION, (4) ANCILLARY SERVICES. SOME AREAS OF CONSENSUS WERE--PRESENT VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMS ARE INADEQUATE. THERE IS A NEED FOR ONE NATIONAL VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF SUPPLEMENTED BY REGIONAL VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS. THERE SHOULD BE UPGRADING OF PRE-SERVICE AND IN-SERVICE TRAINING OF STAFF. BETTER COMMUNICATION BETWEEN TEACHERS AND DEAF STUDENTS IS NECESSARY. THERE IS A NEED FOR IMPROVED RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN PROFESSIONAL DISCIPLINES AND LABOR, BUSINESS, AND INDUSTRY. THERE SHOULD BE A CLEARINGHOUSE FOR DISSEMINATION OF INFORMATION ABOUT THE DEAF. MORE RESEARCH IS NEEDED IN ALL AREAS. THE APPENDIX CONTAINS NINE ARTICLES ON VOCATIONAL AND EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS OF THE DEAF AND THE ROSTER OF PARTICIPANTS. THIS DOCUMENT WAS REPRODUCED BY THE VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION ADMINISTRATION, U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND WELFARE, WASHINGTON, D. C. (HK)
